Exciting News! I will be taking part in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap this year! I signed up today to send a dozen cookies to three other bloggers. I must send cookies I have never made before…hmmm time to get thinking.
Since I have been a bit preoccupied rehearsing, I have been doing very little innovative cooking. I was able to whip up some soup for lunches using as few ingredients as possible since I do not have access to my spice rack. Last week I made a pulled chicken and lentil salsa soup and this week a quinoa chicken and veggie stew. They both turned out great so here are the results.
Pulled Chicken and Lentil and Salsa Soup
- 1 bag of frozen veggies ( I chose broccoli)
- 1-1.5 lb raw chicken breast tenders
- 1 C green lentils (uncooked)
- 3 celery stalks
- 3 carrots
- 1 28oz can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 jar of salsa (my favorite is Pace Hot)
sauté the carrots, celery, and lentils for 5 minutes
add remaining ingredients along with a few (3-4) cups of water
cover and let simmer 30 minutes
remove chicken and pull between two forks
